Cardboard Phone Holder




Introduction: Cardboard Phone Holder

I'll show you how to make a cool phone holder while your phone charges.
It is really easy to make using only a few items.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You'll need:
glue gun
glue sticks

white paint
gray paint
wooden skewer

Step 2: Measuring and Cutting

Start by measuring your phone then measure cardboard strips a little larger than the measurements of your phone. Make 5 strips the sides, top and bottom, and the back. You can use the same measurements as i did if you have the same phone.......and dont throw away the cardboard scraps you will use them later on in the build.

Step 3: The Phone Hole

measure your phone to the bottom piece and cut a whole and make like another little box to cover the hole so the phone can sit still

Step 4: The Door

cut a piece of cardboard the same size as the back just a little shorter. then take the wooden skewr and stab it in the corner of the top piece and glue on the door. after the wooden skewer is glued to the door and stabbed in at the top take the bottom piece and stab the wooden skewer through the corner same as the top and then glue the bottom piece on.

Step 5: Make Room for the Charger

cut a hole in the side where you want your charger to go through.
then take some more scrap pieces and attach them to the bottom and trie not glue the skewer otherwise it wont open or close.

Step 6: The Finishing Touches

just test it to see if your phone fits and if you want to make a fridge like i did add a handle and shelf on the inside and paint the top part white and the bottom grey but the handle grey. then add some foam food and you are done!!!

    Paper mache the edges of the cardboard so it looks smoother and cooler. Coolest idea.
